What inspires you to work in leadership development?

My own lived experiences. Growing up in a low-income household and being a first generation high school/college graduate required me to be proactive and learn from others around me. Leadership development allows people to reach their full potential and create lasting ripple effects in their own lives and communities. 

What’s your favorite leadership quote? 

“When you help someone, you help everyone.” – Aunt May in Spider-Man No Way Home 

Where are we most likely to find you when you’re not at work?

You’ll find me eating at my favorite restaurants with family and friends (I’m a huge foodie), weightlifting at the gym, and volunteering in my community.
